Journalism and Mass Communication Monographs

This journal, sponsored by the Association For Education In Journalism and Mass Communication, publishes in-depth research on specific topics within journalism and mass communication. Traditionally, accepted articles are longer than those traditionally published in multi-topic journals but are considerably shorter than book length. Each issue usually contains an extended article on subjects ranging from journalism history and personalities to international mass communication. On rare occasions, an issue may contain more than one submission. All submissions are subject to peer review. The publication appears four times per year. The first issue appeared in 1996.

Potential authors should submit an original manuscript and three copies, all double-spaced throughout, including all quotes, notes, etc. The recommended length for submissions is anywhere from 50 to 90 pages. Authors must include their names and other identifying materials on the first page of the original manuscript. All other submissions must not contain any identifying factors. Authors must comply to the Chicago Manual of Style with footnotes and endnotes published at the end of the text. Tables and figures should not be included in the text but published on separate pages. Submissions must be exclusive to Journalism Communication Monographs.
